There are many ways to start a scam project, Offerzone has decided to go full retard by copying almost everything on their website, including fake LinkedIn profiles. I will literally need a whole day to list projects they have stolen from lol.

This is crazy. What part of their site is not plagiarized?

They didn't even put any effort into exchanging parts of the many paragraphs that they've copied onto their site. It's literally just pasted over at face value. I guess that's how ruthless scammers have become now that they know there's going to also be a bunch of investors that don't do their research before investing.

Their statement that they're the first decentralized bidding platform is also probably false, considering that I've heard this pitch many times before in other projects repetitively. Not surprising if their team members were all fake either.

Also, anyone else noticed that there are a ton of ANN bumpers working on their thread (against forum rules)?

Yes, and those account seems like bumping other threads too:

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=5024219
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=4810153.0
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=4897987.0
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=4935971.0
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=4837693.0
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=4863541.0
etc...

Probably they're the ann bumper hired (or maybe part of the team itself) to bump the ANN thread. Most of those (if not all) ANN threads are fake ICO, using a fake team.

Some accounts involved:

etc...

I know right. Grin
Their explanation is as ridiculous as their website:

That's a pretty interesting list.

I wonder how much money they collected from those services :/

Wut de hel, that's a ridiculous excuse. How come they're being plagiarized if they come after those pages were posted. This is pretty funny.

These fake ICO needs not to be bumped by these users, and if we continue to allow this actions to continue working on this matter I guess this doesn't contribute any positive results towards every people who seeks a legit one. Fake ICO projects will not provide every investors assurance, but it's an idea of dealing on those people who's sprouted a puzzle of being trapped to scam projects.

I hate to bump my own threads but the guys responsible for Offerzone scam, are now looking to make bid raffle for S9 and L3+ miners.

Their raffle is likely as legit as their plagiarized from top to bottom project. Francisco O somehow slipped through the cracks and is not currently neg-trusted. I would like a DT member to look into this if possible.
